Fire Island Ziti

This is amazing. A little time-consuming to make, but worth it at the end. We used turkey Italian sausage instead of the regular pork-based kind, and I also added in some green pepper chunks as well.

Ingredients

* 2 pounds plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
* 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
* 2 garlic cloves, minced
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 8 ounces uncooked ziti
* 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
* 1 pound Italian sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch slices
* 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
* 1/3 cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese

Directions

* Toss the tomatoes with 2 tablespoons oil, garlic and salt. Place cut side down in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 450° for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Chop when cool enough to handle.

* Cook ziti according to package directions, adding broccoli during the last 4 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage in remaining oil until no longer pink. Add pepper flakes; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes and heat through.

* Drain ziti mixture; toss with sausage mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.

Yield: 5 servings.
